Deer Beds

This is a beautiful concept: Katherine Wolkoff followed deer trails in Block Island and photographed deer beds. Apparently, deer press down the vegetation to make a sleeping place where predators won’t see them. They never use the same bed twice, but the imprints can last for a few days. Katherine told James Danziger that the experience was incredibly emotional, and she chose to make the prints 40×50 inches, almost life size. Wouldn’t these be stunning to see in person?

  1. Do you know if it is possible to get prints?

  2. I love those photos of the deer beds! We currently live on a little over 8 acres of mostly wooded land, and we have a lot of deer on our property. From time to time I happen upon these.

    I love the fact that she made the prints almost life-size!

  3. Erectile Dysfunction FAQ’s

    Impotence, or penile erectile dysfunction, in men is not as rare as one would think it is.
    In fact, one out of ten men around the world is affected by this condition. It is not exclusive to old men either. Impotence is caused not just by physical factors,
    but mental factors as well.
    Exercising on a regular basis and eating healthy food will increase your ability to sustain prolonged physical effort and we all know that sex is effort.
    Smoking, frequently drinking large quantities of alcohol, taking recreational drugs and lack of exercising will sap your stamina and also slow down the flow of blood.
    Penis exercises can be used for maintaining fitness, preventing or controlling premature ejaculation and increasing the length and girth of the penis.
    by penis enlargement pills you can overcome these problems and not only that you can also enlarge, extend also to strengthen your penis and premature ejaculation will not exist anymore for you.

  4. This blog is really wonderful and very interesting. It catched my attention since the first time.
    But when i read the word bed my imagination flies to another place.I love the cozy and big bed and enjoy the soft mattress with a boy. All of this after to buy viagra to get the bet performance.

  5. These are beautiful. I spent my childhood summers in rural Michigan and these were an amazing part of those nights. Love it.

  6. Sorry, I like a lot of her work very much and I think the idea behind this is really beautiful etc. but to be honest the prints as seen at NY Photo Fest are boring.

  7. I LOVE this. I grew up in VT and we used to find this in the back yard all the time (yes, we weren’t so good at mowing).

    ugh as much as i want to like katherine’s work…i can’t. she claims to be environmentally aware yet she has said again and again how she loves foie gras. why celebrate deer beds when she would probably murder the deers herself? i don’t support her at all.

  9. been there, done that. we have more deer around here than anyone’s garden wants to admit. it’s more cool to see the deer themselves.

  10. these are so haunting and beautiful.

    we are so lucky to have our very own katherine wolkoff!…one of her incredible silhouette portraits: Untitled (Anna 2)

    she’s clearly not just a photographer…but an artist who uses the camera to express her brilliance.

  11. oh wow how smart are those animals! and pretty finicky about where they sleep from what i can see! i am surprised they haven’t camped out a four seasons!

  12. It is a beautiful concept! I never knew deer made these beds.. I’d love to see those..

  13. Absolutely gorgeous!

  14. I’m so telling my husband about these “deer beds” just to see if he knows about them. He’s the nature boy and I’ve never heard him mention them. Thx for sharing such a cool thing.

    “The mountain grass cannot but keep the for where the mountain hare has lain.”
